The Deactivation and Decommissioning Knowledge Management Information Tool (D&D KM-IT) serves as a centralized repository providing a common interface for all D&D related activities. It assists users in gathering, analyzing, storing and sharing knowledge and information within the D&D community. This approach assists in reducing the need to rediscover the knowledge of the past while capturing the new knowledge and experiences gained during D&D operations resulting in enhanced worker safety, schedule efficiencies, and overall reduction of technical risk.
The D&D Knowledge Management Information Tool (KM-IT) is a web-based information tool to manage knowledge, custom-built for the D&D user community, by the Applied Research Center (ARC) at Florida International University (FIU) in collaboration with the Department of Energy, the Energy Facility Contractors Group (EFCOG), and the former ALARA Centers at the Hanford and Savannah River Sites.
The D&D KM-IT has been developed through the application of state-of-the-art web technologies in a secured environment to serve as a single point or portal of knowledge for D&D activities. The system consolidates a wide span of knowledge relevant to the D&D community making it available on the web, and in a mobile format, for easy navigation and use by its users supporting a strategic vision of its knowledge base becoming self-sustaining through active participation by the D&D community of practice.
